I am a trainer and consultant in the field of counselling and psychotherapy. I am an experienced person-centred/experiential therapist. I am also a senior lecturer at Liverpool John Moores University, I teach on their MA in Person Centred & Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy. I completed my PhD research in 2017 with Manchester Metropolitan University, my thesis explored the concept of boundaries in counselling, particularly how they are understood and experienced by counsellors. I won the CPCAB award in 2019 for my PhD research, details of this can be viewed in the video below. I have delivered training and workshops on boundaries for counsellors, psychotherapists and other professionals.
